July 4, 1934 – May. 2, 2013
It is with great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Gary, in hospital, with Lynda at his side.
A private, gentle-spirited man who valued his home, family, fishing and community. Gary valued his friendships and generously gave of his time, shared his knowledge, was a problem solver, teacher and advisor, a lover of animals and music and enjoyed reading autobiographies of our Cariboo pioneers. He had a great sense of humour and a quick wit. He could be seen either walking his dog or riding the backhoe around the loop and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Garry is survived by his partner of 34 years, Lynda Person; special friends: Brian and Trish Thom, Maya and Kevin, Jeremy and Michael; Lynda’s family: Mary Person, Cheryl and Gordon Wiles, Ian and Charlene, and Ken and Kathy Person. Predeceased by Lynda’s Dad Malcolm Person and by his loyal companions: Shorty, Scruffy, Ernest and Mozart.
A community Remembrance Gathering was held May 19, 2013 at the home of Foster and Charlie Dulton at Hawkins Lake. Thank you to our many friends and neighbours for your kind words, stories and cards; and to the ladies who brought food plates.
Family will hold an interment in Chilliwack at a later date.
